stirewalt. thanks so much. have a great week. >>> the obama administration says its health care website should now work for the vast majority, there's that word again, of americans. there are still plenty of errors being reported. like peter dfound out. what did you find out? >> a lot more problems to healthcare.gov than on amazon, gretchen. all morning long healthcare.gov is having major issues. they appear to be the result of high volume. the administration said this week, as you know, 50,000 users are supposed to be able to simultaneously shop at healthcare.gov. mo most of my attempts to log in or apply for coverage today have been met with this notice. there are too many visitors at the website. there is an option to enter an e-mail for a follow up about better times to come back. i first entered my e-mail 11:40 this morning, about 2 1/2 hours ago. still waiting for that note back. take a look at this. just complete gibberish. on the first screen that an interested consumer would see after leaving the home page, this shot i took at my desk just a little bit more than one hour ago. t
he had to say. [video clip] last week, the obama administration tried to hide another unilateral, one-year obamacare. just like in july, right before holiday,endence day the administration try to hide the one-year delay of the business mandate. president obama and others have tried to hide what they knew problems wellite before the website launched. administration tries to continue to hide problems on the website.of the the administration has tried to hide the security problems that that one official called the website'sr to launch. the president and house democrats tried to hide for millions of americans would lose the coverage that they liked. the president and house democrats tried to hide for years that many americans will access to the doctors, the pediatricians, and perhaps even the hospitals that they choose. at this point, one has to ask, what else are they hiding? congressman. think they're hiding anything, frankly. i think when you are pushing timehing out for the first , you do not immediately say everything that is wrong. then people will say, -- they work anding to make i
, gretchen. >> that's a catch. as well white house officials are launching a campaign, they did last week, to sell the benefits of obama care to the american public. but what's the new message today? >> reporter: well, you know, talking about medicaid specifically in the state of north carolina, there are some states where you have seen there have been roadblocks to actually get it going. they say inside the white house that once you get it expanded, it's going to mean a lot more people being covered. but republicans are saying it's not just a cost issue. it's the question of when you look at these enrollment numbers, is it because people are actually signing up and paying into the system, or is it folks just getting medicaid? is that beefing up the numbers and sort of distorting the picture? gretchen? >> all right. ed henry live for us at the white house. thanks so much. >> good to see you. >>> more trouble for obama care now with the word the federal health exchange is now determining that some people with salaries as high as $80,000 a year, $80,000, are eligible for medicaid when clear
, janice. >>> the past couple of weeks we've brought you concerns, wide concerns about whether or not obama care is safe. will it be someplace you can leave your personal information knowing it's not going to be disseminated to other people. we've had a lot of concerns. the white house is responding consistently. that's paranoid talk. of course you can trust obama care. in the state of california you can't. the obama care exchanges have been passing out personal information to insurance companies which then market that information using that information, they market their services. >> these aren't even people that signed up. these are people that took a cursory glance, maybe filled out part of an application. >> they're getting phone calls from insurance companies saying, hey, we understand you're looking for insurance. how can we be of assistance. would you like to pay us? peter levy, covered california, listen to this quote, see if you are comforted by this. he's using comforting words. he said i can imagine some people may be upset, but i can see a lot of people will be comforted and rel
week. you can expect she'll face a range of questions about what's being done to protect the personal information of the american people. bret. >> mike, thank you. >>> president obama is learning sooner or later everything comes back to his health care plan. chief white house correspondent ed henry reports on a day that did not start out that way. >> reporter: eager to steady a disastrous start to his second term, president obama today began a very deliberate attempt to fire up his political base. first delivering a speech sponsored by the liberal center for american progress on income inequality, a topic that warms the cockles of progressive hearts. >> we don't promise equal outcomes, we strived to deliver equal opportunity. >> reporter: and with some of the young people who helped elect him now appearing to bail on him, the president later dropped by a youth summit at the white house and practically begged the young and healthy folks to sign up for his health care law. >> and that's why i'm here, because i need your help. >> reporter: top republicans fired back today the president h
the uncle said that barack obama stayed with him for three weeks in the 1980s. why the differing accounts? >> back when this arose, folks looked at the record, including the president's book, and there was no evidence that they had met. >> reporter: jay carney says it was when he asked the president in person that the president acknowledged he'd stayed with his uncle. it could be simple semantics, but the white house was first asked about the relationship a couple of years ago. after the uncle had been arrested for drunk driving and it came to light that he was fighting deportation. that's given ammunition to republican critics. critics of the white house says this speaks to a deeper credibility problem of the president and his staff not being forthcoming even on matters that wouldn't at the outset being politically damaging. >> so, really, it was such an unforced error and it just goes back to this thing of the white house not being completely forthright with facts with the public. it's what's contributed to his trustworthiness numbers going way down. >> reporter: and political observers
this week, on thursday claimed that president obama never held a one-on-one meeting with kathleen sebelius who is in charge of obama care, head of hhs. the white house on friday, jay carney held a press conference and says those reports are erroneous. of course he met with kathleen sebelius and often those aren't logged into the log book. listen to jay carney. >> cabinet secretaries don't regularly get entered into the visitors' logs because they come frequently. kathleen sebelius comes frequently and meets frequently with the president. i will refer you to the department for more information and more detail. she is here a lot. >> that's simply not true and he is being disingenuous there. it's not about the law books, but the president's personal calendar. that is what the initial report was citing. >> why is there so much documentation for others members of the cabinet? why is it on record for former secretary clinton having met 73 times one-on-one or 57 times for secretary timothy geithner? it doesn't make sense. americans are outraged about the whole debacle of the website and this new
and close allies to hold senior level people accountable for the botched rollout of president obama's plan. now, part of the thing that i find most intriguing over the last couple weeks is how quiet democrats have been from harry reid on down and outside senator manchin, no one is saying a word. we heard they were waiting 'til december 1. now we understand maybe get a clue of what's happening behind the scenes, pressure is mounting for the president to fix it and make somebody responsible for it because if you go out and try to getected, knowing this is on your resume, this is a vote that you supported, you have to at least pretend as if you're trying to fix it. you could say hey, i've put pressure on the president to restructure and change his management style. >> extraordinarily -- and the president's top advisors through the years have been very loyal. extraordinarily yesterday, bill burton told megyn kelly, and he was a communications guy for the president for a very long time -- said you know what? forget about anybody else. this has one person to blame and that person is -- here it i
, is it giving the attention from law enforcement? should president obama speak out on this? would that put the spotlight on it? >> i raised that issue a week ago, that the president of the united states, the attorney general should address this phenomenon, this very sick phenomenon that is going on, young people involved in assaulting grandmother, young people of 12 years old and in between. of course the president should speak out and say something. he does whatever he desires to do, even in individual cases. so of course we need the president, the attorney general to highlight this. you know, i was on a panel earlier today on a show where some people said, you know, young people acting, you know, they're bored. can you imagine people are bored? and therefore they go over to a 76-year-old woman and punch them in the face? and these attacks have resulted in people dying. that's what the point is. thank god in many of the cases people were only hurt, but, you know something, greta? the psychological effect on people, the 78 year old woman who happens to be a neighbor, and i got her to go to
traffic, morningses, evenings or woke weeks. >> it is proof positive of not ironed out. and david ph ouffe said it may not be until 2017 for obama care website to be working. maybe that is just a aggressive expectation management. moments before i came on the hour, i tried to log in to healthcare.gov. i got two clicks in the process before i hit an error message and we are now two days past the administration's self imposed do over dead line, two months since the initial launch in october and three and half years since the enactment of this law and taxpayers have spent billion on a malfunctioning website. >> at some point they will get it featured out. and then it is not a website problem. it is a problem of whether they will hit the enrollment numbers. do we have any idea how many people have been able to sewn up? >> there is a report to today from bloomberg citing anonymous research sources that is 100,000 people were able to sign up. and the definition that the administration uses for signing up for plans is not fully enrolled. they have counted people who selected it and put it in a sh
? >> reporter: jay carney would not answer whether the president is going to sign up for obama care himself. we did learn today that the health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius is going to testify on capitol hill again. she hasn't done that in a few weeks. she got grilled before, as you remember. she's going to testify later this month. it's interesting because she had an op-ed today in "usa today" where she was basically pleading with people, sort of a desperate plea, i know you're frustrated with the website. but we're turning the corner. it's gotten better. so please come back, take a look. she realizes that their credibility has previously been shot. they're trying to get that credibility back tonight, greta. and they're just pleading, begging with people, go back to the site. they might get thrown into that queue but they think here inside the white house tonight that the experience is getting better and in the long run they're turning the corner. we'll see, greta. >> ed, thank you. >> reporter: thank you. >>> listen to this. hhs secretary kathleen sebelius offering this sugg
now will be filling by a successor. thatnoticed that last week president obama, and you today, using theosh avoided word obamacare. is that now -- >> i came out and talked about obamacare several times. >> i do not hear people using the word anymore. >> watchword? >> obamacare. >> i think you're going to sue me somewhere. [laughter] fine witht i am calling obamacare, the president is fine with it. we are focused on making sure that the care part is delivered to the americans that want it. whether it is the affordable care act, obamacare, or anything else, what matters to the president is that the benefits available to every american who gets covered through the exchanges, or have covered all the -- already, is delivered. or one of us who has insurance coverage already has benefits from the afford will care act, from obamacare. child between 18 and 26, that child is now able to stay on your insurance coverage, where before they were not. there are benefits when it comes insurers,bility of because of the afford will care act, throw you off the plan because of a pre-existing condition.
